Well its Halloween eve.... and this hop is nearly at an end.... the blog list is on my side bar....please check out Terra's blog for all the rules and a list of the wonderfully generous sponsors.
During this hop i have made quite a few pages for a book.... and  more than a few ATC's....that i decided to make into a book also.... so for my final day posting to the DE-STEMPELWINKEL DESIGN TEAM BLOG  in October i have to share with you the book covers created using DE-STEMPELWINKEL stamps
This is the ATC book, it contains 12 ATC'S plus note paper pages to write on.... it fastens with a ribbon tie.
Its coloured with promarkers and copious amounts of black and grey ink...as per usual.
I couldnt come this close to Halloween without another POE project.....
This i think you'd call a 'mini'.....? It consists of 6x double sided hard-board pages.... held together with book rings. For my cover i used a piece of designer paper and altered it with various stamps,stamped and masked to make a halloween/Poe scene. I kept the colours muted.... used promarkers and yet more ink...... thats it now just one more day to go.
Thanks for visiting me. BDx
